Robert Pattinson has a critically acclaimed movie ("Cosmopolis") coming out this summer. And as he leaves the "Twilight" saga behind, he has four words for you: Don't call him R-Patz.

"When I got this part," he tells The Guardian, "every single article that came out, was, 'R-Patz's struggle for credibility!'; I don't understand who invented that thing, 'R-Patz', I want to strangle them. But once you've made that step, everything afterwards is not like, 'R-Patz's continuing struggle for credibility!' You've got to come up with something else, so it gets a little bit easier."

Just like broody Edward Cullen, R-Patz (excuse us, Pattinson) seems unsure about his fame and talent. "I don't really know how accepted I am," the 26-year-old says. "Nothing ever matters to me apart from the people with negative opinions. That's literally it. That always drives me on to the next thing.

"I've never really taken myself seriously as an actor," he continues. "It is surprising the amount of people who think I'm going to be really dumb. I think they think anyone who has done teen movies is just an idiot. I don't know, maybe I am."
